Vocational Education Outcomes: A Thesaurus of Outcome Questions

"This thesaurus is designed to provide the vocational education community and its relevant audiences with a comprehensive, organized listing of outcome questions and hypotheses. The first of two sections includes a discussion of the importance as well as problems of attempting to develop a classification system for categorizing vocational outcomes. It also explains how the outcome questions are classified and how the reader can locate outcome questions of interest.

Classification Scheme for Career Education Resource Materials

"The introductory section of the paper expresses its purpose: to devise a classification scheme for career education resource material, which will be used to develop the USOE Office of Career Education Resource Library and will be disseminated to interested State departments of education and local school districts to assist them in classifying their own career education resource materials. The second section of the paper describes the classification of career education resource material, revised after critiquing by 50 randomly selected career education practitioners.

CSO Standard Fields of Education Classification

"The CSO Standard Fields of Education Classification is a classification of the various fields of study which can be undertaken. This classification was derived from a joint project with Eurostat and UNESCO. It is based on the International Standard Classification of Education - ISCED 1997 (Fields of Education). In 1999, Eurostat and UNESCO further elaborated on the ISCED 1997 and provided a third level of about 80 categories called 'Detailed Fields'.

Classification of Fields of Training

"Sub-classification to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-97) by field of education which has been created with the double objective of providing more detail and precision for the purpose of collecting policy-relevant data on fields of vocational education and training, while simultaneously maintaining the logic and structure of ISCED. The Classification on 'Fields of Training' has been replaced since the beginning of 1999 by the 'Classification of fields of education and training'."

VOCED Thesaurus

"This thesaurus is based on the original APSDEP Thesaurus, produced in 1993 by the International Labour Organisation's Asian and Pacific Skills Development Programme (ILO/APSDEP). Selected appropriate terms from the APSDEP thesaurus have been merged with terms from a supplement, produced at NCVER, containing recent Australian vocational education and training (VET) terms. This thesaurus is not currently being used in VOCEDplus."

Terminology of European Education and Training Policy

"This multilingual glossary of terms used in education and training policy is intended for researchers and more generally for all those involved in education and training policy. It does not represent an exhaustive inventory of the terminology used by specialists; rather it identifies a selection of key terms that are essential for an understanding of current education and training policy in Europe."

European Training Thesaurus

"The European Training Thesaurus (ETT) constitutes the controlled vocabulary of reference for vocational education and training (VET) in Europe. It is used to describe and access the knowledge of its institution, Cedefop. It contains over 2,500 terms (1550 are descriptors, and 950 non descriptors). Non-descriptors are in italics and contain a reference to the preferred term (descriptor). All terms are accessible through an alphabetical index in English (EN) and French (FR).
